Calypso Vintage Butterfly

Card three from the weekend! Almost forgot to do this post before crashing this evening :)

This may be my favorite from the weekend. Love the wow look, but it's not complex at all!!

I've seen lots of butterflies during this Sale-A-Bration period so I decided it was time to do one!! The card base is Calypso Coral. The background layer is also Calypso Coral. On the background layer, we embossed along the edge of each side using the Simply Scored tool. You can use your embossed lines either recessed, or raised-whichever suits you!! After the scoring, we stamped the words from Loving Thoughts just above the bottom lines. We then added the element from Fresh Vintage, once upside down just above the words, and once right side up near the top. Calypso Coral on Calypso Coral by the way. Next, we stamped on the Beautiful Butterfly cut from Naturals Ivory, also with the element from Fresh Vintage. We stamped once in the center, then used the "edges" of the element to ink again and fill in the wings. I scored the butterfly and folded him just a little in the center. Sponge the edges with Calypso Coral ink and curl the wings around the Paper-Piercer for added dimension. The butterfly is attached to the card background with one dimensional that was split and attached behind the score line in the center. Pearls were added to the bods for the final accent.
